I have had a very busy couple of days. Walking dogs is lovely especially if you’re being paid for it, but dashing from house to house and fitting 9 hours worth of walks into 6 hours is tiring.
However Mother Nature had a couple of wonderful surprises in store for me today.
My first walk was through a lovely little wood. The floor was covered with snow and the morning light was glowing pink as it hit the trees side on. It was magical and glittery. Sadly I didn’t have my camera with me
A little way into the trees I could hear a woodpecker. I couldn’t see it but I very clearly heard it. It was disappointing to have missed it but I was so happy to have heard that ‘Woody Woodpecker’ noise hammering on the tree.
I walked a few more dogs in different parts of the town, in the beautiful sunshine and crisp snow, and was strolling between jobs when I spotted a flash of red and green.
I realised immediately what it was. A Green Woodpecker! Damn – still no camera!
I got to see such wonderful scenery and a woodpecker (!) today. Having been caught up in the stress of working I was forgetting to enjoy the fact that I have my dream job (although it could pay more ;op ) I just wish I had my camera
(but as I didn’t here’s a couple of pics from yesterday)
